Multidisciplinary plenary: Quality of life | Virtual Summit 2020


This plenary from the WFH 2020 Virtual Summit seeks to explore and explain the role of pain. Deon York, Lorimer Moseley and Dr. Bajan Singh will explore the new understanding of pain, and how that understanding can change one’s perspectives of dealing with pain, as well as an overview of what sleep is, how it happens and why ‘good’ sleep is so important to being healthy and how pain influences sleep patterns.

Before administering any products, the WFH urges patients to check dosages with a physician or hemophilia centre staff, and to consult the pharmaceutical company’s printed instructions.
